I've been a delinquent and I'm sorry. I'm 3/4 through my OB rotation and I will be very sad to move on to psychiatry. I love OB. I look forward to doing lots of it in my second year electives. I'm trying to make changes to the rotation to benefit my classmates. I'm kind of sad I was the first one to do the rotation because I think my colleagues are going to get more exposure on the ward and be able to dial their half days back to family practice down a little bit to facilitate being around L and D more.

I'm very tired. I'm waiting for twins to be born tonight and I'll go in if it happens before midnight/if they go vaginally as planned. I'm on call tomorrow night.

I think because Ben isn't living her right now, I get tempted into working way too much. Ben has an interview closer to here on Thursday next week and I will jump for joy if he gets it. I'm tired of living alone. I woke up last night in the middle of the night thinking someone was in my house. It was really creepy. I needed my Ben.

In other news, the tour de france time trial is tonight and I'm hoping Cadel Evans pulls it out of his ass tonight and gives one last showing before slipping away into the depths of the peleton for the rest of the race.

Residency has started and so far I've only been home before 11 pm one day this week. But, it's totally my own fault so don't feel sorry for me. I'm always tempted to stick around for that one more delivery... which last night turned into 5 deliveries. But, I need the experience and as the only resident on the service I get first dibs, which is awesome. I did my first c/s first-assist last night and it was great. The docs are fab. I'm having a good time.

Plus, my family clinic half days are going really well too. I love my preceptor and we're pretty alike. It's most excellent!
